Happy Birthday, Stinkbumps!

On this date, at very nearly this exact time, 12 years ago I gave birth to my stinkbumps.  The first 12 years have blown past. I’m sure the next six years will be even more fleeting.  His babyhood and childhood are pretty much behind him, as he now enters *shudders* adolescence.  Dear Lord, please watch over my boy and help him to grow up to be a Godly young man.  And Lord, please watch over me and grant me endless patience as he enters this new stage of life.  Something about the last 12 years tells me I’m really going to need it!

Congratulations and good luck! I think mothers are highly underrated on birthdays. It's kinda our accomplishment, here. Hope he has a great day and I hope you do too.

Happy birthday, Jamie! I hope I get to see you soon.

I remember when he was a baby and a little boy. He was so sweet and so precious. I hear he's still very snuggly and thoughtful. And he's added some other qualities.

You're one of my favorite mommies, and I hope you are blessed by mommyness today.
